Abstract

The authors proposed a method of preoperative planning of surgical procedures on the hand using a bone model made from polymer clay. A detailed description of the method and an example of its clinical use are given. This method proved to be effective in treatment of seven patients with deformities of the phalanx of fingers and metacarpal bones. The proposed method of preoperative planning helps the surgeon to perform the intended operation correctly.
